These were yummy! Easy to prepare and the hardest part was waiting for them to set! I had a little taste while the mixture was still hot (couldn't resist!) and the sweet/chocolate balance was perfect. Definitely be making these again!

These are quite the yummy little treat! The only problem I had was I kept waiting for the ingredients to "thicken" as stated in the directions. Mine never really thickened even after 15 minutes of simmering. It would coat the back of a spoon but I was expecting it to be more like a pudding consistency just before it sets. No worries, I poured it into the popsicle molds and they turned out great. Thx for sharing your recipe.

So easy and so delicious! Great to give as a gift with dry ingredients in mason jar, and pop molds.
